Batman Begins is a brilliant relaunch of the Batman franchise. Christian Bale does a great job as the caped crusader. Though British, he manages to pull off the part of Bruce Wayne and the Bat with great finesse. This movie is also fun because we see a hero in the making, not just someone has already been established. There's an element of realism throughout the film.
I've watched Batman Begins several times recently in anticipation of its sequel. It definitely lives up to repeated viewings and is a great action and superhero flick.
